#OctTBR2022 Day 25: “Antifragile” by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What It Is: A book praising the benefits of what TR would call “the strenuous life.”

Why I’m Reading It: I’ve heard several people talk about Taleb’s ideas here and the benefits of being “anti-fragile” in a world that seems determined to make people soft and dependent. I can recognize that my own life has often drifted into path of least resistance, but if I want to be the kind of husband, father, and man that I should, I need to embrace challenge. I’m curious to see if Taleb can help me readjust my mindset in this direction.
